Who We Serve

ILS was established in 1966, and today we serve clients in every county in Indiana. (To see which of our offices serves the various counties, click here.) We have about 100 attorneys and many other staff members working in offices around the state in areas including family law, housing, comsumer law, expungements and driver’s licenses. ILS has several specialized projects to address the needs of particular client communities, including the Senior Law Project, the Immigrants and Language Rights Center, the Low Income Taxpayer Clinic, the Military Assistance Project, the Legal Assistance for Victimized Adults (LAVA) Project, and the LGBT Project, and the Worker’s Rights & Protection Project (WRAPP) addressing the need of migrant farmworkers, other agricultural workers, and survivors of human trafficking. ILS is governed by a Board of Directors that includes private attorneys and low-income people who are eligible for services at ILS.

In 2022, ILS served over 15,000 low income people. Some of these cases were full representation cases, where an ILS attorney represented the client in a court or agency action. Others involved giving a client advice about his or her legal rights and what action the client could take.
